Not a $67 course

Every course in the city raised their prices during the pandemic, including this one. I don't have a problem with that, but put it back into the course. Same bald fairways, the greens were great, burgers that come complimentary were good too. This course is fun and challenging, I just wish that they would take care of the fairways.

Greens were great at least

Greens were obviously where the budget goes, they were great. Fairways had a bunch of thin spots and were hard. The bunkers were extremely poorly managed. I liked the layout and think the potential is there for a great track.

Alittle more rain will help fairways. Greens in nice shape. Good rolls. Sand needs a lot of work.

Great pace of play, good conditions

Amid the pandemic-fueled golf boom, pace of play (especially on the weekends) is a huge problem at many courses these days. Our foursome experienced no such issues this past weekend. Granted, we teed off at 8am and it was 42 degrees so maybe that had something to do with it. But it was an otherwise beautiful day and our group didn't have to stop and wait a single time.

As for the conditions, there fairways and greens were in excellent shape. The only blemish was the bunkers, which were really bad (yet another thing that seems to be increasingly common these days).

Expect a tough, challenging test of golf from this rolling, hilly track with tiered, well-protected greens. But with the solid conditions, swift pace of play, and the free burger/hot dog, chips and drink you get included, it's a fair value that's worth checking out.
